Avery at Six Months

We took Avery to her 6-month check-up yesterday to find she is growing steadily in the 25th percentile for weight (14.5 lbs) and 75th for height. She was all smiles until she was given four shots in her thighs! Ugh, I hated that for her!

She is still a super happy little girl with lots to coo and smile about. She's been sitting up all by herself for a few weeks now. She grabs everything within reach and tries her hardest to get to things just out of reach. She is loving all the baby food she's tried so far... peas, carrots, sweet potatoes, bananas, pears and apple sauce. She also eyes everything we eat and tries to grab for it. I almost feel bad eating in front of her. :) She still sleeps very well taking several naps during the day and sleeps 10 hours at night.

Finally, she's old enough to bring to my gym's child-care!!! I've really enjoyed working out indoors again. Running in all this cold weather was really getting old!

I'm just amazed at how fast these first six months have gone by! We love you, sweet Avery!

With the standard amount of spit-up on her chin.

Loving the sweet potatoes!

What a big girl...the bib fits!! And she's sitting up!! I can remember holding the bib up to her and laughing about the day to come when it would actually work for its intended purpose and not as a dress. Love the updates eventhough I'm not supposed to be reading them. ;) I can't help it.

This could be my blog entry! How funny! Eli had his 6mth apt the day after Avery's, and was also all smiles until the shot in each thigh. I just HATE that part. He is also enjoying all his baby food, sitting up. It's so funny how close they are and it shows more and more as they get older. The only difference....he weighed in at 20 lbs. 90th height, 90th weight. That's OK, more "umph" to take care of his sweet Avery when they get older.... :)~ Her personal bodyguard!
